New York: Albany County Staging Attack on Ammunition Sales!

Tuesday, March 10, 2009

Please Stand-Up and Make Your Voice Heard!

At Monday night’s meeting of the Albany County Legislature, Legislators Phillip Steck (D), Douglas Bullock (D) and Wanda Willingham (D) introduced Local Law “A”, a proposal that would regulate the purchase of ammunition in Albany County. 

Local Law “A” would require that a valid firearms license be shown when purchasing ammunition.  The law would also mandate that retailers keep a record of ammunition sales, including the type, caliber, and quantity of the ammunition, make, model and serial number of the firearm it is for, as well as the purchaser’s name and address.  As if that is not enough, Local Law “A” would also create a secondary method of gun registration for both long guns and handguns.  Local Law “A” has been sent to the Law Committee.

Congress has tried ammunition registration in the past, only to discover that it was not only ineffective for law enforcement, but also completely unmanageable due to the sheer volume of transactions.  Ammunition registration creates huge record keeping requirements and provides no useful benefits for law enforcement; which is why it was repealed under the Firearm Owners Protection Act of 1986.

Please contact the members of the Law Committee and the County Legislators TODAY and respectfully voice your opposition to Local Law “A.”  Contact information for the members of the Law Committee can be found below.  County Legislators can be reached by phone at (518) 447-7168 or fax (518) 447-5695.  For more contact information, please visit http://www.albanycounty.com/departments/legislature/legislator.asp?id=165.
